    Ya I get that if you can nicely sling words at Google then you're a legitimate writer on HubPages; or if you make 30 dollars every six months then also you're a writer on HubPages.

    But what makes a 'good writer' on HubPages! big_smile

      Good morning, a good writer on HubPages is one whose articles get thousands of views and whose hubscore range from 80-100.  Also, articles must be logical and analytical in scope.  They furthermore must have correct grammar.   Also, a good writer is one who is familiar with SEO principles.  They have the knack to know what the readers want and supply that need.  They also know how to use creative topics and be a unique writer.  They must furthermore establish their unique brand as a writer.

      Reading the caption on your picture - can you quote ONE Hubber who's said you're not a good enough writer?

      You're making exactly the same mistake as another person on another thread - misreading what people are telling you.

      NO ONE is saying creative writing or poetry is bad, in fact I bet most responders haven't even looked at your Hubs.  The fact that you won't get readers has nothing whatsoever to do with the quality of your writing!!!!!   It's just the nature of the internet - where if you can't please Google, your articles won't get read, no matter how amazing they are.  Sad, but true.

        Well, there are ways to compensate for those factors that you mention. I got a nice "comment" (it seemed nice to me) from 'Missy' on my flash-fiction yesterday. I got that just after helping her a little on the forums here. smile

          Do you actually read anyone's posts?   

          Having a comment from Missy is nice, but her view is an internal one - therefore it won't help your Hub stay Featured. Therefore you won't continue to get comments for very long because your Hub will become invisible.  If you don't care about that, that's fine.

            Right now I've one hub. It's featured and has always been since its publication. Additionally, I've turned off all advertisements on my hub. smile

              You've only been here 3 weeks, so your Hub is still in its probationary period.  HubPages gives it a decent length of time to get traffic before it wields the axe.  Let me know how it's doing in January.

              I'm not sure that turning your ads off makes HP not able to earn money from your work you see. You're the only one not getting a single red cent from your writings. As, if you aren't aware of that, HupPages pays for at least a dedicated webhost, which is extremely expensive. Without the money earned from ads, they wouldn't be able to let you get an account and publish your writings.

              Now if someone would let us know that if even with ads turned off HP still earn money? Thanks smile

              OK went to your Hub and saw that there are NO ads on it. Imagine if ALL Hubbers would do that, who would pay for HP to be live on the Web?

              This is something that always irritated me with former Squidoo members, those who didn't care about who would pay for the site to be maintained, the team to be paid, etc. "I'm a writer and don't mind this and that and don't want ads on my pages". Yet they liked to be published on the site.

            That one "comment" is enough for now. :-)
